    "The Brass Ring"

    Y'all,

    This is a short work of mine called "The Brass Ring".

    There are some GPO samples involved (flute, one string section). The rest are Acme brand samples supplied by The Roadrunner. Meep! Meep!

    Regards,

    LGA

    Larry,

    I really like it. What I enjoyed was the harmonic coloring "surprises" you created.

    That's almost the main thing *I* look for in music, "delightful surprises" that I did not expect, and that make me smile with pleasure. Burt Bacharach tended to do that for me.

    The Brass Ring just did as well.

    Great job!

    I'm just a "surprise a minute".

    I am pleased that you liked this little effort, Glenn. (with two n's)

    Thanks and regards to you,

    Enjoyed it very much. On this speakers it seems like a very in-your-face mix (well, the harpsichord anyway); I think it would be just as good if not better with a little more ambience.

    I love the chromaticism in the chord progressions too. It deserves to be developed into a longer piece with a nice middle section.

    Bravo!

    It is meant to be an in-your-face mix.

    For something similar, listen to my "Dramatic Chromatics" in this forum's archives.

    Thanks for your comments and thank you for listening.

    Hehehe - that's great. I like the humour of it all. It reminds me of balloons and balloon sellers - don't ask me why. Great though. Maybe Amsterdam many years ago - hahahah!

    Not bad at all for an old geezer! How you doin' ol timer?

    Larry, pick a key and stay in it. Just kiddin. The chromaticism is wonderful. And it does evoke images of being whirled around in circles until one's lunch takes leave of itself.

    Are you sayin' that my music is barf-able?

    Thanks for appreciating my chromaticism.
